SOURCE: rear brake dragging

Hello, I worked at GM for years and the right rear caliper on the trucks are a common to wear the inside pad before the others they have no fix to repair this problem from reocurring. Matter of fact I own a 2001 and I have bought a set of pads just to replace the one on my truck.

SOURCE: I want to change brake pads on my 03 Mazda Protege

Some calipers have a bolt holding the hand brake mechanism to the body of the caliper. hold the mechanism with a spnner or If yours dont simply lever the mechanism with a bar or long screw driver. Place a pair of lock pliers/ mole grips on the cable(not too tight or you'll fray/damage the cable) then remove the cable from the caliper. When you get the pads out use a screw driver or wind back tool to reset the caliper travel or you will damage the caliper or lose the hand brake altogether.

SOURCE: Mustang parking brake won't release tension on rear brakes

since the new pads are alot thicker than the old ones,the brake needs to be set properly.
something is not right for sure.
the retainer for the park brake cable may be not in the right spot.there is two places it can fit.

SOURCE: brake pad is sticking.

You may have a defective brake caliper. Replace or rebuild the brake caliper. (If not performed) replace all brake fluid to new, as there may be dirt, metals, and other foreign objects in the fluid. Also check your your E. Brake adjustment!! Hopefully this helps

Locking brake on the rear passenger side!


Its probably the rubber hose that goes between the metal break line and the caliper. That hose is like a 2 way valve that lets fluid into the caliper when brakes are applied and lets fluid back out when brakes are released. These hoses deteriorate and stop letting fluid back out causing the brake to stay tight against rotor.

How do you change the rear brakes pads and a caliper on a 2004 XJ8?


you will need to 1st get a caliber turning set from harbor freight, it very cheap maybe 35-40 bucks...you need to raise both rear tires,crank the car put it in neutral so that the electric module releases the brakes from park position,then you disconnect the neg battery term.remove the tires, open the hood,remove the fluid reservoir cap,remove the calibers by the two bolts facing the inside,then remove the pads,then take the caliber tooland lock the two male nipples ends inside the female piston plates(u will see how the fit)now make sure the brace plate of the of the caliber tool is snug and begin turning the tool threaded side clockwise,and the bolt near the plate should be turned counter clockwise and each turn will turn the piston inside the caliber until its all the way flush with the inside of the caliber wall itself...then place the pads inside the caliber rotors are the same as removing from any other car,they may need a good tap with a hammer,some may have one alen head screw.But replace the rotors and pads.Once they are replaced,lower the car,reconnect the neg terminal,put the fluid cap back on,crank the car,pump the brakes and hold the center console lever upuntil the brake light goes off and u will hear the rear brake module engage.Hope this helps!

My front brake pads keep holding up...when I drive they get really hot and wont release...what's the deal?


Your brake caliper or your brake hardware is sticking. Pull it apart(two bolts) and push the caliper back in with a spreader or a c-clamp. The grease the brake hardware(where the bolts go in). That might do the trick. If you have a hard time getting the caliper peston back in then you need to replace it and bleed the brake system.

My mini van 1999 dodge caravan , the front drivers side wheel , breaks squeak while driving but not when i apply breaks the break light comes on intermittently . what could be the problem ?


this is likley to be a sticky piston in the brake caliber,,,stirp the brakes out on both sides of the car and free off the pistons by cleaning them first then pushing them right back into the calibers chace that the caliber is free to slide as well use copper grease on the caliber pins and on the "back" of the brake pads,, check there is plenty of life left in the pads if not fit a new set to "both sides" dont just fix one side do both sides or the car wont stop in a strate line or may pull to one side!

The drivers side rear rim keeps getting hot even after replacing the router, caliber, emergency brake pads and the hub. What can be going on?


The pads are not releasing on that axle. Why? Not bleed correctly,rust on everything,because brakes weren't done correctly, no lubricant where needed. Any number of things. Simple fix ,that should have never happened.

Its a good idea to turn your rotors if your putting on new pads so that you get a good seat.  The steering wheel vibration may be your new pads wearing in and trying to find a good seat.  Give it another 500 miles for break in period and if you still get the problem, then replace the pads with better ones and check to see if your rotors are not warped.  Your pads will never seat correctly if your rotors are warped and make sure you use plenty of that shim goop they give you in the package before putting on the pads.

2004 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab brake replacement


jack the truck up and take the passangers tire off. look behind the rotor you should see 2 bolts holding the caliber on to the rotor. loosen those and take them out. from there you should be able pull up on the caliber this will take the caliber and pads off together. take the pads out of the caliber and install the new ones .

BECAREFUL not to twist or bend the caliber to much or you will bend the brake line.....

once you have installed the new brake pads in the caliber. put the caliber back on the rotor. if they will not fit release the bleader valve to release the pressure. than you should be able to slid the caliber back onto the rotor. once you have done that close the bleader valve. reinstall the 2 bolts to hold the caliber in place. put your tie back one. Follow these steps for the other side.

now once that is done. you might want to blead the front breaks.
what you do is have someone help you. fill the brake resiviour with brake fliud. than start your truck.
Have someone in the cab to press the brake. What you want to do is turn the wheel so you can get to the bleader valve. once you can get to it open it up. have the person in the cab other truck press the brake until you see a steady flow of brake fluid coming out of the caliber. once you see that have the pseron press the brake once more and hold it to the floor.
close the bleader valve.

now do the same thing on the other side. But, make sure you check your resivour fluid first.
This is to make sure you don't have any air in the lines. after you are done with both side put it in gear and hit the brake make sure you stop......... If that works go about half the block down and hit the brake again to make sure you stop......
once you have done that and are comfortable with the way the truck stops than ou are good to go and now know how to change the brakes for future refrence..... be aware the back brakes are diffrent.........

let me know when you are ready for the back brakes.
do not blead the front ones if ou intend to do the back brakes afterwarwords......

if you are only doing the front brakes you must blead the the passanger side first......... if you do not have the bolts holding your caliber on than you will have a pin the you will take a hammer to and knock it out that will release them....
